ompdecomp

Decompose signal using orthogonal matching pursuit

Description

[coeff,dictatom,atomidx,errnorm] = ompdecomp(X,dict) computes the decomposition matrices coeff and dictatom of the signal X. The product of the decomposition matrices, dictatom x coeff, approximates X. The atoms in dictatom are selected from dict. atomidx are the indices in dict corresponding to dictatom. errnorm is the decomposition error. The decomposition is based on an orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) algorithm that minimizes the Frobenius norm ||Xdictatom x coeff||.

example

[coeff,dictatom,atomidx,errnorm] = ompdecomp(X,dict,'MaxSparsity',nm) also specifies the maximum sparsity nm.

[coeff,dictatom,atomidx,errnorm] = ompdecomp(X,dict,'NormWeight',wts) minimizes the weighted Frobenius norm ||wts1/2(Xdictatom x coeff)|| using the weights wts.

Examples

Given a set of optimal, full-digital, beamforming weights for an 8-element ULA, decompose the weights into a product of analog and digital beamforming weights. Assume the system has two RF chains. Show that the combined weights achieve similar performance as the optimal weights.

Specify the optimal, full-digital, beamforming weigths.

wopt = steervec((0:7)*0.5,[20 -40]);

Create a dictionary of steering vectors.

stvdict = steervec((0:7)*0.5,-90:90);

Perform the weights decomposition using OMP. Set the maximum sparsity to two.

[wbb,wrf,wdictidx,normerr] = ompdecomp(wopt,stvdict,'MaxSparsity',2);

Compare the beam patterns derived from the optimal weights and the hybrid weights. The plot shows that the decomposition of wopt into wrf and wbb is almost exact.

collapse all

Input data to be decomposed, specified as a complex-valued N-by-Nc matrix.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Dictionary of atoms, specified as a complex-valued matrix. The function uses a subset of atoms from the dictionary to construct the data.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Maximum sparsity of the decomposition, specified as a positive integer. The decomposition stops when the sparsity of nm is achieved.

Example: 5

Dependencies

Use this argument with the syntax specifying 'MaxSparsity'.

Data Types: double

Norm weights used by OMP to minimize the weighted Frobenius norm of ||wts1/2 x (Xdictatom x coeff)||, specified as a complex-valued N-by-N matrix.

Example: 5

Dependencies

Use this argument with the syntax specifying 'NormWeight'.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Output Arguments

collapse all

Coefficients of basis atoms, returned as an Ns-by-Nc matrix. The rows represent the coefficients for the corresponding atoms in dictatom. Ns represents the number of atoms selected from the dictionary and is a measure of signal sparsity.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Signal basis atoms, returned as an N-by-Ns matrix. The columns are the atoms forming the basis of the signal. These atoms are a subset of the dictionary specified in dict. Ns represents the number of selected atoms and is a measure of signal sparsity.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Indices of the atoms selected from the dictionary dict, returned as a length-Ns row vector where dict(:,atomidx) = dictatom.

Data Types: double

Norm of the decomposition error, returned as a nonnegative scalar.

Data Types: double

Hybrid Beamforming Weights

In the context of hybrid beamforming, the coeff argument represents digital weights. dictatom represents analog weights and dict is a collection of steering vectors that can be used as analog weights.
